    Yeah I am only in AS year at the moment but I have to think about where I want to go and what I want to do by June. I am doing Media, English Language and English Literature. What GCSEs did you get?

    You could always ask your college to change your subject so you could skip the foundation year altogether so long as youve done a math and science a level then you can apply directly onto a science degree.
    I did 15 GCSE'S A*-C including English literature, additional maths, Additional science, Triple award science, history instead of geography, Religious education, Product design, Fine Art (baring in mind I initially wanted to be a fashion illustrator)
    How about you?

    I might just leave it as I'm used to the subjects I do but thanks anyways. And I need to get my Maths up to a B and I need to get an A in Additional Science as when I did them subjects first time round, I had some problems personally so I ended up choosing English subjects as I got good grades in them.

    I've just completed this course and it's possibly the best decision i've made in terms of doing the subject I want. It's given me so much time to really figure out what I want to do and the staff are very supportive. I know it's a bit of a nuisance having to take a year extra to get onto first year but if you're not completely clear on what you want to do or will have to make a compromise if you go straight onto first year, it helps you figure it all out
